Marimekko chat with designer Aino-Maija Metsola about their stunning new collection - The Weather Diary Collection

Where did you get the idea for the patterns in the Sääpäiväkirja collection?

"Before I started working on the patterns, we got together with Marimekko's design team members to discuss what we were interested in. It became apparent that we were all fascinated by rain, wind, fog, light and the effect of weather on us."

"I approached the theme by focusing on things I know. I live on an island, which means that many of the ideas behind the patterns in the Sääpäiväkirja collection came to me while jogging along the shoreline in the evening or walking with my dog. Some of the ideas are also based on my memories of sailing trips in the Finnish archipelago."

"I feel that weather phenomena seem to be more powerful and interesting in the vicinity of the sea. Especially in the autumn."
